I am so truly sorry. Al... I would most like to say Thank you! Job well done. I don't know of many that have made such a positive impact into people's lives.

Lee and family, you have my deepest sympathies.

I am so very, very sorry to hear this news; my family is one of many who benefitted from his extraordinary generosity with his time and his energy in helping others from all over the world.

He truly was a great man, so I don't think he will be resting in peace. He is probably re-organising the reception process in heaven...

This is really terrible news--Al was an amazing man and a real warrior and hero. This forum will not be the same without him and we all owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all he has done his entire life. I am so sad. Sending love to his family.

My heartfelt prayers goes out to Al's family and to this greiving community. Al was a pillar here and to be shaken by this news is to put it mildly. I hope that we all can continue to honor his memory and what he has started here to keep this community thriving. Rest in peace dear friend.

Lee, Thank you for sharing Al with us over the years. He set an example for all on how to deal with ALS with amazing grace and acceptance. He truly LIVED with the disease, and spread his expertise with all who would listen (!).

I will truly miss his presence on the forum, and feel your sadness. My condolences to you and the family.
